Guidebooks often describe Platea Madrid as a food hall, but that description doesn’t even begin to cover the experience, which brings together six Michelin-starred eateries in the same place. The first thing you’ll notice is the space—a movie theater that’s been completely renovated to create mezzanine-style platforms littered with tables and chairs (all within view of the stage itself, which remains intact and often hosts live musical performances). Each mezzanine offers several dining options, from tapas to pizza to seafood, supplemented by bars offering cocktails and wines for pairing. This is a popular spot, so finding seating can be a little tricky, but the food’s so good that standing room isn’t necessarily a bad option.
